"Players with a copy of the original World of Warcraft who had not yet upgraded to The Burning Crusade have had their accounts upgraded to access the content and features of The Burning Crusade expansion at no additional cost."Interesting change as well, matches up nicely with the veteran emails with new game codes and the new RAF changes.

It's nice, but... I don't really know anyone I can refer WoW to at this point, and it's not from a lack of contacts.Most people I know either play it, tried it and dislike it, or know about MMOs and are particularly keen on avoiding WoW because of the raiding aspect. Since raiding is so central in this game, I really don't think I can honestly get anyone into MMOs with this game. Other RL friends and guildies are in similar positions, since we discussed it when we got our new "give a copy of WoW away" recruit a friend posts. This is a nice gesture and way of trying to get more players but, as someone else has said, WoW's almost like digital golf. Most folks are pretty familiar with it by name at the very least, and many have putzed around with it.

I don't understand how with a game as huge as WoW anyone can say any one aspect of the game is "central to" it. Yeah there's a certain part of the story only revealed by the raids but the same can be said of the books and what percentage of players actually read those things?I realize this wasn't the point of anything you said, I just don't get that viewpoint and needed to comment.

@mem0ryburn:Best rewards being only from raids, thus feeding a "if you don't raid, you are no one" mentality.Other play styles either don't have many rewards, or have rewards that are simply worse than the ones raiders get.The day I find a MMO that is good overall and lets me get equivalent rewards from all content sizes (solo, small groups, raids), as well as from non-combat options, is most likely the day I stop looking at other MMOs.
